Read in November, 2010

Jeffery Deaver writes some of the cleverest, well constructed crime novels to be found anywhere and this really hits the mark.
When Washington D.C. police detective Ryan Kessler is targeted by Henry Loving, he and his family are immediately put under government protection. Loving is a ruthless ‘lifter’, hired to extract information from his victims, and he will use whatever means necessary including kidnapping, torturing or killing their family. The hero of this tale is Corte uncompromising, relentlessly devoted to protecting those in his care and a brilliant game strategist but above all else an ordinary man in extraordinary circumstances. The to-ing and fro-ing is brilliantly handled and there are more red herrings than you will find in your average fishmongers. Stunning read.
